Yet Another Alitalia Deal: $315 Off Any Flight! Fly From JFK To Israel For $376 Round Trip With Multiple Stopovers…

406

Update, 1:05am: This deal is now dead.
You can still use the Alitalia USA site and save 25% on flights booked there.

———————————————————————

Follow @DansDeals on twitter and you’ll get a tweet when a deal is posted on DansDeals.com! You can even opt-in to get a text message (and choose which hours of the night not to bother you) whenever DansDeals.com is updated!
———————————————————————

You can save 25,000 Japanese Yen, currently $315.18, on any tickets booked on Alitalia Japan.
The site is in Japanese but you can just open the page using Google’s Chrome browser and it will translate the page to English. You can also have the english version of Alitalia.com open in a different browser to help you as the sites are very similar.

Use the following “E-Coupon” code on the Alitalia Japan site after selecting your flights: PROMOJP
Travel must be booked by 10/26 and begin between 11/05/12 and 03/27/13.
Blackout dates are 12/20/12-01/06/13.
Beware that this can be pulled at any time and Alitalia can always attempt to cancel people’s tickets.

This will be a better deal than the 25% off code for any tickets that are under $1,260.
——————————————————————–
If you want just one short stop you can save $315.
All Alitalia flights from the US go through Rome or Milan.

-For example searching for JFK-Tel Aviv on 12/02-12/10 the regular Alitalia site prices the ticket out at $1,018.40. With 25% off it is $763.80.
The Japanese site prices it at ¥80,980 which is currently $1,020.93. With ¥25,000 off it is ¥55,980 which is currently $705.74.

Here is a sample valid itinerary for $705:
New York (JFK) to Rome (FCO) – Sun, Dec 2 Dep: 5:55PM-Arr: 8:10AM
Rome (FCO) to Tel Aviv (TLV) – Mon, Dec 3 Dep: 11:45AM-Arr: 4:05PM

Tel Aviv (TLV) to Rome (FCO) – Mon, Dec 10 Dep: 5:30AM-Arr: 8:20AM
Rome (FCO) to New York (JFK) – Mon, Dec 10 Dep: 10:10AM-Arr: 2:00PM

-Miami-Tel Aviv on 12/03-12/09 for example is ¥52,380 with the ¥25,000 discount or $660 round-trip with tax.
——————————————————————–
Of course with a $315 discount per ticket booked you can book 2 separate tickets to save $630. This will mean 3 total stops.
For example:

-Ticket #1: JFK to Madrid from 11/21-11/29 is ¥24,340 after the ¥25,000 discount or just $306.86 round-trip with tax.

-Ticket #2: Madrid to Tel Aviv from 11/22-11/28 is ¥7,320 after the ¥25,000 discount or just $92.28 round-trip with tax.

Or even cheaper:
-JFK to Madrid from 01/27-02/07 is ¥22,540 after the ¥25,000 discount or just $284.16 round-trip with tax.

-Madrid to Tel Aviv from 01/28-02/06 is ¥7,320 after the ¥25,000 discount or just $92.28 round-trip with tax.

The total from JFK to Tel Aviv would thus be $376 round-trip with tax.  I’m sure there are other places besides Madrid to play this game with and such a flight would mean flying from JFK-Rome-Madrid-Rome-Tel Aviv-Rome-Madrid-Rome-JFK.  Hardly ideal, but doable I suppose.
There are connections available for the flights to Tel Aviv but on the return you would have to spend at least a night (well, technically) 6 hours in Madrid, though of course you could also stay longer.

Here is a sample valid itinerary for $376:
New York (JFK) to Rome (FCO) – Sun, Jan 27, Dep: 5:55PM-Arr: 8:10AM
Rome (FCO) to Madrid (MAD) – Mon, Jan 28, Dep: 8:55AM-Arr: 11:30AM
Madrid (MAD) to Rome (FCO) – Mon, Jan 28, Dep: 5:45PM-Arr: 8:15PM
Rome (FCO) to Tel Aviv (TLV) – Mon, Jan 28 Dep: 10:15PM-Arr: 2:35AM

Tel Aviv (TLV) to Rome (FCO) – Wed, Feb 6 Dep: 2:50PM-Arr: 5:40PM
Rome (FCO) to Madrid (MAD) – Wed, Feb 6 Dep: 9:15PM-Arr: 11:50PM
Madrid (MAD) to Rome (FCO) – Thu, Feb 7 Dep: 6:00AM-Arr: 8:25AM
Rome (FCO) to New York (JFK) – Thu, Feb 7 Dep: 10:10AM-Arr: 2:00PM

On the bright side that $376 round-trip ticket to Israel would earn you 14,705 redeemable and elite qualifying miles on partner Skyteam airlines like Delta or Flying Blue!
——————————————————————–
Other sample flights with the coupon:

-London to Venice from 03/03-03/10 is free after ¥25,000 discount.

-Tel Aviv to Rome from 12/03-12/10 is ¥16,650 after the ¥25,000 discount or just $209.91 round-trip with tax.

-Rome to Venice from 12/05-12/10 is ¥610 after the ¥25,000 discount or just $7.69 round-trip with tax.

Use a card like Sapphire Preferred to earn 2.14 miles per dollar and pay no foreign exchange fees.  Or you may want to use Freedom even though it has a 3% foreign exchange fee because this quarter you earn over 5 Ultimate Rewards points per dollar on airfare (up to $1,500).

Want to find cheap flights with flexible dates? You can even search for flights from your closest departure airports to anywhere in Europe! Just type in an airport and use the nearby airports functionality and increase the default mileage range and then select all of them!  You will want to uncheck “allow airport changes” if you don’t want it to search for flights that arrive in one city and leave from another.

Post a comment with deals you find!

Read about using ITA Software here and use the following advanced routing code to limit the calendar search to only Alitalia flights: AZ+
Remember to use the code in both the departure and return fields.

Once you find a deal on ITA just plugin those dates onto the Alitalia site.

Dan, I don’t know if you realize how powerful you are…you were able to get the entire Alitalia booking system down. Your posts are awesome and much appreciated. You have a little army behind you.

Debbie

@slow guy123:

Shalom

Dan did you call me? sorry i was in the bathroom. call again.

Leonard

I am on the phone with Alitalia – The woman is saying that the promotion was only until 10 AM Japan time, and it is no longer available. Basically fuggeddaboudit. I was trying a few alternate routing , and in the meantime lost the opportunity. What a shame!

Thanks anyway, Dan

Guys please stop calling the airline! Its been posted many times that you should NEVER call an airline/hotel/etc when there is a good deal/price mistake/system glitch.

When are you people going to learn???

Cnceling all tickets

DAVID, DEBBIE, SLOW GUY, DEALS, DEAL LURKER, SEGEV and LEONARD: it is because of idiots like you why most mistake fares do not get published on DansDeals. The truth is if a deal is on flyertalk then it might as well be on D.D. But in general, the morons like you who have to call the airlines and kill it for everyone is why we don’t divulge mistakes unless it is already “out there”. And for those of you who want to take the “moral highground” about calling/keeping secret these deals: you shouldn’t be using the internet!

they cancelled my tickets

I had tickets printed out, and they cancelled them. litalia is gonna get a firestorm of calls andbad PR if they do not honor these legit tickets.

Leah

Is the deal over? Can we still get these tickets?

gyn

All flights booked on the Japanese site have been canceled. Just got an email and called up to confirm.

Frankl

@Sruly, it’s a good idea, but what about the return ticket, and your luggage will be stuck in Madrid.
Let me know if I’m wrong, because I would do it otherwise.
I’m traveling with 5 kids, and I can’t afford to be stranded anywhere, and I can’t afford be stuck without my luggage.

moshe

@Dan: Is it possible to book the rome milan rome leg of the trip separately , so that when u dont show up to it even if they void that ticket it will not effect the jfk-tlv flight?

jj

I looked on other blogs and it LOOKS LIKE PEOPLE ARE GETTING CANCELATION email from Alitalia.

ahron

i booked tickets for pesach and now they say theu canceled all theses tickets for everyone are they allowed to do that i got eticket number etc!????

sam

@Dan: any of the dates and ones you suggested, the circle would just spin and then it would stop and the price would stay the same!

ahron

i just rebooked with the 25 code for like 100 more per tkt will they at least give me slight discount on new booking??

sam

@sruly: what dates did you do?

joe

you are missing one fact maybe someone has said it already you can not have a connection on the same day on the way back. you can’t get into mad b4 1 pm there is no way a vonnection the same day mad rom or mil nyc so you either need a hotel which is not free or spend the the night in the airport which is doable if you aere really desperate

Allon

I tried booking on the Japanese Alitalia site on the same routing found on ITA (all legs were AL not codeshare) and am having a problem entering the PROMOJP promo code. Anyone have similar issues?

hunch

@debbie
This was a glitch. It was intended only for tickets originating in jalan.

Thanx to all the dumb@$$es that called the airline.

To all those posting comments like “but dan??”, should be ashamed of themselves. This is the reason why dan doesn’t normally post deals that aren’t guaranteed to go through.

In fact, Dan wrote in the post that they may cancel tickets.

ahron

glitch my a@# to bad i paidaround 700 something per ticket they still making money not exactly free!

jackie

where do I go to get the 376.00 tickets with 2 stops. I keep clicking and I do not see the site. why did you have to pay 700 and was it 2 2 stops. also what airline elal

FanOfDan

Yes! Thanks DAVID, DEBBIE, SLOW GUY, DEALS, DEAL LURKER, SEGEV and LEONARD!!! What stupid idiots you all are!!!

toroboy

Booked for 750 round trip to canada, very easy and short stopover with the 255 off
still a great deal as we dont have anytickets under 1000
thanks for the 25 percent coupon

Moshe

Can you get the 25% of on 2 flights? for example JFK-ROME then ROME- TEL AVIV and get 25% of each ticket?

I ROSENBERG

thx for trying dan. love your site!!!!!

Ellen

STOP wining , a bunch of freeloaders, i knew about this mistake on the Japan site 2 days ago before most of you and i did not participate, after discount code PROMOJP all inter european fres came to $0 or a few dollars!! REAALY? Do you expect ALITALIA or any airline to go out of business to please you and fly you all over Europe for free? Alitalia had it on their Japan site which is in Japanese , till someone discovered there was a glitch , bloggers were all over it , in short ALITALIA has every right to not honor theser tickets. One more thing, all you freeloaders or shall i say (dishonest opportunists) cause airlines at the end to raise ticket prices and award miles required for the rest of the legitimate frequent travellers .

sam

the us alitalia site currently when you try to purchase the ticket with the 25 percent off promo code it says the payment service is not working. I called them up and they said that their site is not working for payment. So i tried it anyways an after 5 times of hitting pay now and getting error messages i gave up…..till i saw in my email one of my tries had been successfull even thoguht they gave me an error message. I then proceeded to do it again with my wife and kid and again error messages but after 4 times i saw another email in my inbox and waolah. so keep on trying. Great deal.. Thanks.

sharon

I got this email at around 4pm Sunday October 21. This deal was done by then. Can you please send this email out sooner? Missed the Israel deal:(

I am speaking Italian and I call office of airline and I inquire about the deal and they very angry at this internet site and say it not nice to do this to people. He said that this internet site dansdeals is stealing money from airports and he knows that we are not giving the deal.

Leslie

To be realistic, it’s very difficult to see an instance where Alitalia honors all these discounted tickets. That being said, Alitalia should offer some type of compensation. Either a voucher for future purchases or a coupon that can stack with the 25% off currently available. The problem is that they are employing the forgive and forget tactic, hoping that in a few weeks this will brush off and everything will return to normal. I understand that mistakes occur, but imagine if the tables were turned and as a consumer we had made the mistake: either it be the date or time. I can guarantee that regardless of the circumstances or your financial status Alitalia would assess a fee for the change. This is why all the people who call out morality or ethics should reassess the situation. This is business, there was nothing illegal in the purchase of the ticket. As consumers we should demand some compensation. Any decent airline would have handled this situation in a more professional manner.

Danni

Worst airline ever
